Hello fellow A/C Folks!
I need to repair and or replace a flexible hose section in the middle of a metal line on a 1994 Ford Aerostar. The host isn't readily avaiable, I'm sure I can find it if need be, but I enjoy doing things my self, so here goes -
I was looking at the 71550 - Hydra-Krimp (Basic Crimper) for purchase. What style hose ends do I need to replace on the metal tube for the crimp to be successful. From my reading there are two styles, a barb fitting and a beadlock fitting.
From my reading and searching online I need to remove the existing fitting (cut it off with a tubing cutter) and braze back on a new fitting. The tube is steel, and replacement fittings will be steel - depending on which style I need. I will be using barrier hose (standard not reduced wall) for the R134a system.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
In the last few tables in the link provided are the ends needed to replace a hose section. Size and tubing type is what you need to keep in mind.
Mastercool crimper is a good choice.
